The world we know as of today is marked by countless tragedies and conflicts. Every morning when you turn over the pages of your national newspaper you will encounter a number of such misfortunate events. Be it natural calamities, man made disasters or atrocities committed by humans on their own. Sometimes it feels that there is no end to human suffering. But in this dense darkness, there is light in the form of a number of charities and humanitarian efforts.
Custodians of Israel
One such charity is the IFCJ or the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. Founded almost 30 years ago, whoever asks the question that – is IFCJ is a good charity? Gets their answer in the form of the exemplary IFCJ reviews by organisations all over the globe. The IFCJ ratings over the years boast of an outstanding performance when it comes to upholding the rights of human beings and helping them during their suffering.
One of the major contributors to the IFCJ rating in recent times has been their efforts to help the Holocaust survivors. We are already aware of the suffering of the people who died or lived through the Holocaust. And the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has in association with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee pledged aid to the survivors in the former Soviet Union.
The aid will be in the form of food and shelter amounting to $52 million. The project has been named as The Food and Medicine Lifeline which will operate for a period of 4 years with an annual commitment of $13 million per year. The IFCJ or The Fellowship was founded by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein in the year of 1983. And since its inception the fellowship has endeavoured to build a strong relationship founded in harmony, communication and respect.
